I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt...” (Exodus 3:7)

These were God’s words when He first appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai through a burning bush that was not consumed by the holy fire. Moses was chosen by God when he was only a baby. His mother, by faith, placed him in a basket on the Nile River to save his life. The Hebrews were slaves in Egypt for centuries and male children born were being killed by the Egyptian army. Moses was found and raised by Pharaoh’s daughter. When he came to know his origin, he took the pains of his people, and trying to solve the problem with his hands, he killed an Egyptian. He had to run away from that nation to save himself.

He became a shepherd in the land of Midian. After 40 years, as he was caring for the sheep, he saw something extraordinary: a burning bush that was not consumed. From that moment on, his life would never be the same. God heard the cry out of His people and was going to use Moses to set them free. For that to happen, Moses had to sacrifice and trust in God, placing his life and dreams in His hands.

Egypt became desolate after God sent ten plagues to the land, forcing Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go. The Egyptian army followed them with the intent of killing them all, but God opened the Red Sea, and after His people had crossed, the sea closed, destroying the entire Egyptian army.

God was preparing His people for an eternal covenant. He chose Mount Sinai as His holy place, His Altar to make the pact with His people that would change the story of humanity.

It was on Mount Sinai that, with His fingers, God prepared the Ten Commandments that would guide the lives of His people. It was there that a new nation was born, a nation of overcomers. Mount Sinai is the place of sacrifice and a new life, a new story.

For decades, bishops and pastors of The Universal Church have traveled to Egypt to the Sinai Peninsula and have climbed this holy mountain of nearly 7,500 ft, also called Mountain of Moses or Mount Hareh. They do so to take the requests of God’s people and to cry out on their behalf. God chose this granitic mountain to show to us that when He comes down upon our lives, He can transform it into something extraordinary: just like Mount Sinai, the burning bush, like Moses and the people of Israel.

If you have been trying to solve your impossible cases or to achieve your dreams with human strength and failed, if you are fed up and know that God is calling you to this challenge to change your life, then visit The Universal Church near you to learn more and participate in the Campaign of Israel. The same God is alive today, and His promises remain valid and true.
